Ladines Signs With UAF
Skagit Valley College sophomore center Isaac Ladines signed a National Letter of Intent this week to continue his basketball career with the University of Alaska Fairbanks next season.
“Coach Durham really made me feel wanted during the recruiting process. He was very consistent with his contact all season long” said Ladines. “The school was a perfect match. It had the two main things I was looking for; a great engineering program and a great basketball team coming back next season, It also gives me the opportunity to play in front of family and friend over the next two years as UAF is in the GANC conference.” Ladines would add.
The 6’8 center started every game for the Cardinals as he average 8 points and 5 rebounds a game. Ladines helped the Cardinals earn the North Region title, a 20 win season, and helped the Cardinals advance to the NWAACC Final Four.
“I am very excited for Isaac. He worked very hard this season to improve his offensive game. I think UAF is a great fit for him. His best basketball is still ahead of him,” said Skagit Valley head coach Brock Veltri.
Three Cardinals Earn All-Region Honors
With the regular season in the books and the Cardinals now looking ahead to the NWAACC Tournament the post season awards have started rolling in for the North Region Champions. Three Cardinals including Barnes, Smith, and Diggs all earned All-Region honors.
Malik Barnes, the 6’5 sophomore wing, made the North Region 1st Team. Barnes led the Cardinals in both points and rebounds this past season with 13 ppg and 6 rpg. Elijah Smith, a 6’2” point guard for the Cardinals, earned 2nd team honors. He was the only freshman guard to make either 1st or 2nd team. He averaged 10 ppg during the course of the season and 7 rpg during conference play, which was a team high. Olajuwon Diggs, a 6’3” wing. made the All-Defensive team for the North. Diggs helped SVC allow the fewest point per game during conference play in the North Region. The Cardinals also held their opponents to 39% shooting from the floor, which was one of the lowest field goal percentages allowed in all of the NWAACC.
